Top Three Tuesdays: HIGHLIGHTERS
Welcome to my third Top Three Tuesday installment! This was my favourite one to write. I don’t know if it was because the products themselves are so incredibly beautiful or because I am obsessed with highlighters over all. Either way, I loved writing this post. I thought I would struggle with choosing my top three because I love highlighters so much but there were three (technically five) which stood out immediately when I was going through my collection.
M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade
There is really not much that I can say about this highlighter that I have not said before. I have reviewed it here and did a comparison against another product here and it is just daaaayum amazing. These Top Three Tuesday products are in no particular order but I can fully say that this is number one and it will probably still be my number one for years to come.
Make-Up Revolution Triple Baked Highlighters in original Goddess of Love and Golden Goddess.
What I LOVE about these babies is, besides that the packaging is perfect, these are a complete dupe for the Too Faced Perfect Blush Flush. I am a total sucker for products which are dupes for pricer items and these are definitely in that category! The highlight gives off an almost strobe-light effect and the original Goddess of Love leaves you with a flushed look while the Golden Goddess leaves you looking bronzey and sun-kissed. Due to their sheen I would not suggest using these on your forehead or cupids bow but they are amazing on your cheeks and cheekbones.
Make-Up Academy Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighters in Pink Shimmer & Iridescent Gold
Another product which I have reviewed before. The main thing that I love about these highlighters is that they are SO pigmented. And I mean that one light dab gives off such an intense colour that you won’t need a touch up the entire day. While they are both highlighters, I prefer using Pink Shimmer as a brightening blusher but Iridescent Gold gives off the perfect highlight colour whether you are using it on your face, brow bones, cupid bow or forehead.
And then ONCE AGAIN I am adding in a fourth product. Besides for this product, I do not own any cream highlighters that changed my life so I could not have a Top Three Tuesday segment dedicated to cream highlighters. Therefore I thought I would throw this one in with the powders; The M.A.C Cream Colour Base in HUSH
I never even thought of trying out cream highlighters until a M.A.C sales lady practically forced this upon me, and I am so glad that she did! It lasts MUCH longer than a powder highlighter and it really gives you that high sheen that you look for in a highlighter. I suppose the colour would throw people off (I myself was a bit freaked out) but it transfers onto your skin as a frosty and slightly tinted glow. An overall WINNER.
Being a M.A.C product it is on the pricey side of cosmetic items as R240 but well worth the money as it will last you a good two or so years.
What did you think of my Top Three? Are there are products which YOU think should have made the list?
That heart highlighter is so pretty
